I am excited to announce that Don Bluth is partnering up with myself (Lavalle Lee) to create something new for all the fans in the animation world. The project is called Bluth Fables. Don Bluth writes, narrates and draws out these short nursery rhyme stories as if you are in a storybook. The concept is pretty simple, it’s like reading a book where each page turns with narration by Don Bluth. I will be compiling them together, coloring and desmudging the pages. Don and myself thought it would be fun to create something new and completely free for the fans to enjoy while we develop and pitch larger productions.

Many of these Bluth Fables have already been written, and in the future we may put them together in a book that will be available in stores. Possibly even turn them in to full animated shorts!

Bluth Fables will be created under the newly formed Don Bluth Studios umbrella as well as in association with Traditional Animation. I have been given the honor of being Vice President of this newly formed company Don Bluth Studios. For those of you who know me, you know I will do everything in my power to make things happen for Don. I hope that the fans accept me in this new role, and know that with my love of Traditional Animation, I will fight everyday for hand-drawn animation progress and creation. 

Here is a statement from our new page.

“Don Bluth is teaming up with Lavalle Lee from TraditionalAnimation.com to create brand new content from the newly formed Don Bluth Studios, LLC. This new company is going to be establishing NEW characters, NEW ideas and NEW cartoons. We believe the public is craving another renaissance of hand drawn animation. Our goal is to make that dream become a reality.

Our company will be VERY transparent, showcasing and updating the public with concept art, pencil tests, model sheets, animatics, and much much more. We are excited to show everyone what we have been working on. Please join us in our new adventure!”

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    So excited about this! I had already enrolled in Don Bluth University’s animation training program for this November, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I’ve been working in the film industry for over 20 years, as well as an illustrator, and it’s nice to know you’re never too old to shift gears and follow your dreams again.
